Cleveland Police cause of concern revisit - Ethics and culture

Publication types: Letter and Revisit

Police Forces: Cleveland

Background

During our PEEL inspection of Cleveland, between 20 and 31 May 2019,  we identified six causes of concern. One of them was about ethics and culture.

This was that many senior leaders (superintending and chief officer ranks, and senior police staff managers) aren’t consistently demonstrating ethical behaviour. The inappropriate behaviour of these leaders within Cleveland Police is so profound that it is affecting the efficiency and effectiveness of the force.

We reviewed progress against this cause of concern between 12 April and 25 May 2021.

This letter summarises our findings.
